We share these films as educational resources. As works of art, they can elicit strong responses. Please take care of yourself while watching these films! We’ve created these guides as resources for you when watching the OLIVE films alone, with friends, with your children and/or with your students. These films are intended for personal viewing or facilitation in small groups. If you want to use these in more structured programs, please fill out this form for official use.
